My first question is when rock scaping for tropheus should i be making caves? or just random bigger rocks?

I have a 55 gal with 4 duboisi at the moment right now (my LFS sells them for 15 a piece so i only buy 2 a month) they seem to do fine when introduced to the tank but i feel like i should make hiding spots for them just in case the newley intoduced duboisi have some were to hide?
this is what i have so far, you can't see them... they were asleep when i turned the lights one

Also my other question is whats the typical dimensions for a 150 long? my LFS can special order tanks, and i would love my tropheus to grow out from the 55 into the 150 :)

thanks for all the help guys.

You should get a bunch more rocks like the ones in the pile on the left. any rocks would work ,really, but I think for tropheus it's better if they're rounded

I would make the two piles of rock to the left and right about twice there size and move them to closer to the ends of the tank. Tropheus should claim the piles so spreading them is a good idea. Maybe place a few more short grassy type plants around the structure but that's just a matter of what you like.

Go to youtube and search Tropheus tank or something like that there are a ton of tank videos that might give you some ideas. That way you can see what you like and make a plan. GL!

P.S. Couple of cool videos - second might help with structure ideas...
